Chris got a private tour at the Kodak Technology Vault in Rochester, NY and you can come too and see some of the amazing exhibits they have behind closed doors. Also: the final part of the interview with photographers Richard and Jacob Hutchings.
Chris continues the interview with photographer Richard Hutchings that he started almost exactly one year ago. You’ll get to find out what it means to sing the Alphabet Song with R2D2 on Sesame Street at the age of five.
Today Chris talks about liquid ISO – how the same film can be treated with different amounts of light and still produce results, most of the time more exciting results as if used at box speed. Sina Farhat is our guest, talking about doing aerial photography from a helicopter over Gothenburg for Wikimedia. Also: another chapter of C.J. Chilver’s book A Lesser Photographer.
Chris talks to to Philip Briggs (Author of the Bradt Guide to Ethiopia), Trevor Cole (world traveler and photographer extraordinaire) and Hans van der Haar (Dutch tour operator with a family in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia) about their views of Ethiopia. Some great surprises in this interview.
“..the other thing that people don’t expect and that blew my mind is that it’s a lush, green country. Addis Ababa gets twice as much rainfall as London or Amsterdam…” – Philip Briggs
Stuart has a question on compression. And he doesn’t mean JPG compression, but the visual compression that you get when using a telephoto lens. Is it really the focal length that does it? Or the angle of view? Or maybe the distance between the camera and the subject? Chris explores some of these thoughts. Special guest on today’s show is Allan Attridge who thanks to having two kids, has become an expert in children photography.
